. there is a circus company that i have been fortunate enough to work with the last couple of years. i use elements of dance and choreography and combine that with theater techniques. a lot of the work is content- based, has a strong narrative. the dancers have more of a theatrical feel. i think we are best known for our specific work. in the last 15 years, spending a lot of time focusing on issues that affect us and are related to the african-american experience, here in the united states. i had heard of marcus shelby and had been in join his work but never had the opportunity to meet him. we were brought together by the equal justice society specifically for this project. we were charged with beginning work. marquez and i spent a lot of time addressing our own position on the death penalty, our experiences with people who had been incarcerated, family members, friends of friends. pulling our information. beyond that, we did our own research. to create a picture that resonated with humanity. it is the shape of a house. in this context, it is also small and acts like a cell. i thought that was an i
building up their forces and deploying tanks along the border. u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton has condemned syria for the shelling of the turkish town. >> we are outraged that the syrians have been shooting across the border. >> clinton said the u.s. government is consulting with turkey over what she called a very dangerous situation. turkey is a nato ally of the u.s. she called on responsible nations worldwide to push the syrian government into a cease-fire and political transition of power. >>> emergency workers in syria are doing what they can to hp the wound aftern attack in the city of aleppo. at least three powerful explosions ripped through the center of the commercial capital. they killed more than 30 people. state run tv reports explosions occurred near an officer's club in the northern city. opposition forces are claiming responsibility. they say they used the car bombings to target officers and militias loyal to president bashar al assad. the free syrian army renewed its offensive last week in an effort to win control of aleppo. government forces responded with air stri
: a state of compulsive physiological need for a habit-forming substance. narrator: the use of illicit drugs is increasing in many parts of the world, especially in urban areas. and arising from this increase are a host of social and health relatedroblems connected with drug abuse. one is, of course, the risk associated with the abuse aspect, especially of injecting drugs and risk of infection; the criminality which is associated, and the violence which is associated with e of drugs; and then, of course the mental illness that appears to result also from prolonged drug use or even sometimes short-term drug use. the populations that are most affected are poor populations and nority populations. narror: the specter of poverty hovers in the background of the drug world, but it is far from its only setting. drug use is as familiar to suburbia and the corridors of big business as it is othreets. the reality is drug addiction infiltrates all segments of humanity. the main common feature that we see across different types of addiction is really a commonality in characteristics of the addictions rat

[applause] >> captain paul chignell, along with officers tastings ahastingd lopez. >> good evening to you all. my pleasure to introduce richard hastings and that lopez. -- matt lopez. saturday, july 16, 2011, officer richard hastings and asked matt lopez were on duty and in uniform. their primary assignment was to be on a fixed post detail on the imminence of a railway platform on third street between oakdale avenue and plu avenue. this platform and the surrounding areas are notorious for high incidence of robberies, aggravated assaults, indiscriminate shootings, gang activity, illegal firearm possession, as well as a multitude of quality of life cripes. the bayview station has dedicated a high-level police resources to this area, particularly to a recent rash of robberies on and adjacent to the platform. well on the platform, officers tastings and lopez contacted the subject later identified as k
a series of car bombs target government forces in aleppo. >> the u.s. revs up what europe stalls. -- while europe's tallest. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- it is the day the people of germany celebrate the unity. 22 years ago, east and west reunited with the blessing of their european neighbors. now there has been a pill to draw the right lessons in the crisis europe faces. >> the president of the parliament says his country must strive for greater unity in europe and he warned against perverting -- reverting to old national rivalries as the weaker members of the eurozone struggle. >> the speech in munich is the center of the celebration. >> the ceremony began with music from richard strauss's opera. more than 1500 people attended the ceremony, including germany's top political leaders. the bavarian state premier compared the process of german unification to that of creating a united europe. then he gave the keynote address. >> we are german europeans. we must devote to the nfl -- unification of europe the same effort we made in german unification. he add
million sitting around, waiting for us to do a deal. it takes time to get the grant funds or get the operating funds. we have done that with other properties. so the loose option, or in this case rider first negotiation gives us the opportunity to get the purchase as opposed to having to do it say within a 90-day closing period. >> i have a problem with that, because i understand the lease option has its benefits in terms of putting deal together. but clearly, relative to a purchase, a lease option here is a lot more expensive. whether the purchase price was $21 million or $34 million with interest, or even if it was $40 million or $50 million, you are talking about having to spend tens of millions more that we could have saved if we had actually moved in and bought it. so i would like to really figure out, you know, how do we address that systemic issue to make sure we don't find ourselves in a similar position where we are having to go down the road of leasing properties for things we know we need, when we could have purchased properties for a lot less. >> we agree with you. in
we handle drug enforcement here in california is in effect a war on crumbs instead of the often used phrase on drugs. how do you respond to his remarks? >> well, i think the first thing that we have to recognize is that the majority of people who are caught up in the criminal justice system and who are prosecuted for this type of offense for possession offenses and to some degree possession for sale offenses, the vast majority are indigent people and the vast majority of those indigent people are people of color. so what you have are two systems in place. you have a system where privileged white middle class people basically use drugs, college campuses, frat parties, not clubs, they use drug with impunity, they don't have to worry about being caught. then you have a system that comes down like a ton of bricks on indigent poor people and that's one of the reasons why i think this type of reform is a positive first step because if you aren't going to make drug possession illegal, at least make it a misdemeanor and not a felony. at least don't stigmatize and label an entire population o
preparing. he also has a day drop. i do not think he is used to people challenging him like that. i think he was a little surprised at the level of challenge. i did not know why he did not come up with some of the lines like a 47% in your sending jobs overseas. all things he had in his back pocket. he did not use them. >> strong jobs report could swing the momentum back to the president. >>one of the most talked about moments of the debate came when mitt romney made a reference to sesame street. >> i am not going to keep on spending money to bar from chinaborrow from china. romney's remarks sparked more comments on twitter than his nomination acceptance speech at the g-o-p convention. they also created the hashtag save big bird. >> two-thirds of those who watched the debate believe romney is the winner. nearly half of those polls say the debate did not make them more likely to vote for either candidate. 45 percent say they're now more likely to vote for romney. >> he joked about last night's debate. saying he meant a very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. >>the real mitt rom
for you? >> i think they could decide the election for either one of us. look, we're basically in a tie, the president and i are. he's been president for four years, has outspent me massively in this campaign and yet he's still at a tie. and so the debates could well decide it one way or the other, i don't know. they may not have a lot of fireworks go off and perhaps they don't change things very much, but we're on track to win this. >> pelley: you know, in the debate you could get asked anything and i wonder, how do you prepare for that? >> well, i've been asked almost everything already. ( laughs ) and so my guess is i'll get-- i'll get some questions i haven't expected but i know where i stand. i know why i'm running. i'm concerned about america. i'm concerned about the direction america has been put in. >> pelley: do you study films of the president's debates, past debates? i wonder how you get ready for that kind of thing? >> i talk about issues with my policy team. we talk about some of the more obscure issues that i don't get asked about from time to time, go through those, look

[applause] stupak supervisor campos: good afternoon everyone and welcome to the june 28, 2012 meeting of the joint city and school district select committee. i am the chair of the committee. we are joined by president chiu , commissioner fewer, commissioner maufas, and the following members of the committee are en route. supervisor olague and commissioner mendoza. we have also been joined by supervisor mar. the sfgtv staff covering the meeting, we want to thank them for their work. we also want to thank all of the members of sfusd and the members of the county who are here. if you could please call item no. 1. >> a hearing on the universal -- on the school district plans for a transitional kindergarten. supervisor campos: thank you. this was an item that was continued from our last meeting to writ -- from our last meeting. i woul
, you'll be back here to see us. and so, i think that once again, i go back to the fact that under the current system, because we have so many of those individuals who were once incarcerated at the state level, being pushed down to the counties, there's no room at the end in terms of the county jails. so misdemeanors aren't going to be sentenced to county jail but will be sentenced in community service or whatever. and for those individuals who do need some measure of control and supervision to deal about -- deal with their conviction problems, it's not going to happen at the misdemeanor level. >> let me go to a couple of the questions from the audience. i've shared them with our district attorney. george, two questions there, one related to whether or not drug possession should be treated differently for adults than from juveniles. and then a question about back on track, whether or not that program would be positively or adversely affected by senator leno's proposal. >> yes, let me start with the first question concerning juveniles. i think juveniles definitely need to be treated
. to accommodate the uses you are looking to replace. from a big picture standpoint you are dealing with a small supply of properties that could work. whether they are available or not. then an incredibly large demand for sites like that. from a land perspective, you know, sites -- there's a higher and better use for most of the sites. you look at the rehabilitation that's gone on in san francisco and all the new development, most are redeveloped for offices, research and development, biotech, you know, housing. there is a higher value than storing towed cars. you know, it is used as incredibly difficult to find. when you find an opportunity you will be one of multiple users, owners, developers who are interested in the site. one of the things that kirsten was talking about was the time frame. i was involved in the prologis site for the property. had they not reacted immediately, they would not have been in that position. unfortunately, the way city governments work, if the money is not there and you can't close with very short time frame of due diligence, it is not going to happen. even as you
. u.s. president barack obama and his republican challenger, mitt romney, debated the economy, health care, and the role of government. their debate took place in colorado, one of the battleground states that could decide the election next month. nhk world's mami mochizuki reports from denver. >> reporter: this could turn out to be the most scrutinized event in the election. the first televised debate ahead of the november vote. for both candidates, risks are high. >> president obama and governor romney. [ applause ] >> reporter: americans got their first chance to size up the candidates side by side. they've watched the incumbent for four years. barack obama came into office promising to lead a turnaround. but economy growth has been sluggish. still, he leads in a number of polls, but only just. >> the only way to meet governor romney's pledge of not reducing the deficit, or not adding to the deficit, is by burdening middle-class families. now, that's not my analysis. >> reporter: mitt romney has tried to make the case that his business experience prepares him to lead a recovery. but
every night. thanks so much for joining us. that is all the "money" we have for you today. i will probably save the post office again tomorrow. "the willis report" is coming up next >> it couldn't have been mitt romney. gerri: with more on this, fox news contributor, doug, starting with you. i was blown awe with this debate. nothing that i expected, did mitt romney win the debate or obama lose the beabt? >> both. i thought the president was unfocused, he was, at times, not clear in the answers, but governor romney showed me during a side of the personality not seen before. he was likable, yes, but decisive, clear, and he moved to the center appealing to inexcellents and moderates. gerri: showing up in the numbers too. steven, you were on hand for for obama today, what did they say? >> they took 12 hours to figure out what the spin was because it was not ready last night. they were late getting to the spin room last night in denver. they settled on a line which was mitt romney might have looked good and sounded good, but everything said was false. he was lying one after anothe
the progressive who grieves believes that we're only as wealthy as the least among us. so means that in san francisco we can only go as far as the african-american young men and women who have been economically disadvantaged for generations here in the city. we need to provide jobs. with when we talk about green jobs of future and sustainable produce, we need to talk about how to feed the single mothers in those communities. we need comprehensive reforms to bring those disadvantaged communitis with us. we cannot provide those folks with jobs unless we reform our drug policies in san francisco, which essentially disadvantage and persecute young men of color who on a day to day basis are being subjected to the criminal justice system in a way that is not done by other members of our society. >> you have got another minute. [ laughter ] >> on a day to day basis what we're doing here in san francisco is we are disenfranchising folks and limiting their ability for future employment. once you have a conviction for a non-violent drug-related crime, your chances of getting a future employment ar
't have independent confirmation of that. but it's fairly likely, because the turks said they were using radar to pinpoint the sources of fire that had fired into turkey. the shelling has continued in the early morning, but we don't know whether it will continue. a lot will depend on that. whether the turks keep up the bombardment or whether they will feel their national honor has been satisfied. the other important thing to watch is for any kind of syrian reaction. they have not mention any casualties and their tone so far has been conciliatory, saying there is an investigation under way in syria as to how the fire went across the border into syria and extending condolences to the families of the turkish victims. >> it is a no-nonsense response. just in terms of the domestic realities for turkey and for the turkish government and the position they find themselves in , presumably, they would want to stop this. >> certainly, they don't want to get embroiled in a bilateral fight with the syrian regime on the ground. that has been clear from the beginning. there is a concerted nato division
mode instructions. obama some times had trouble getting a word in. many u.s. media analysts say romney had a belttter performan. the candidates have two more debates they have five weeks to win over undecided voters. turkish forces have fired artillery shells across the border into syria. they're retaliating for syrian mortars that landed in southern turkey. it killed five people including a woman and her three children. the mortar landed in the turkish town of akcakale. they have warned of prompt action if their security was threatened again. turkey has provided support for the opposition free syrian army and the turkish military has been building up tanks. turkey has provided support for the opposition for syrian army and turkish military commanders have been building up their forces and deploying tanks along the border. >>> u.s. secretary of hillary clinton has condemned syria for its part in the exchange of fire. >> we are outraged that the syrians have been shooting across the border. >> clinton says u.s. government officials are consulting with their allies in turkey over what sh

. and that is it for us here live in denver. and first, it's just the first. there are many more still to come. >> vice presidential debate coming up thursday, thanks for watching. >> welcome to hannity. we're live in we'll be joined by rob portman helping to prepare governor romney for the debate will join us tonight. senator marco rubio will be here. one of the things initial thoughts is that you saw the president in a way you've never seen him before. never before hammered this way on a sustained basis. this went on throughout the night. mitt romney energized and was staring at him the whole time, meaning the president. the president would look down, and looking to bail him out in this debate. we've never seen this before in president obama. there is a lot of ground to cover tonight of we'll check in with our focus group. we're live with a lot of voters out there. frank, interested in their reaction tonight. >> and there is in denver that voted accurately and how many of you thought barack obama was a winner, how many of you thought mitt romney? understand this. 13 of the 24 people voted for obama i
for the school district. for us, that would be the equivalent of about five f urlough days. a significant cut if the budget does not pass in november writ it would hold our budget flat this year. we have had several cuts in place over the past school year. 4 furlough days and these would be maintained under the current scenario. as you can see at the bottom of the slide, the trigger cut would be -- it has gotten a little bit worse in the coming days. -- in the last few days. when we look at our budget, we have some positive signs from where we were in january. there is state transportation funding that came back in may, about $7 million. we recently sold one of our surplus properties and that is resulting in a reduction of debt service of about $875,000 annually. you mentioned the rainy day reserve, which we are clearly thankful for. that helped reduce the gap by about $27 million. on the other hand, we do have the midyear cut which could be coming our way. and we have a number of districts around the state that are in a negative or qualified financial position, meaning they are not able to s
you here supporting us in the opening of our public beta. >> good morning, is everyone ready to scoot? alright, thank you, michael, i am really excited to be part of this announcement for three reasons, first of all, san francisco, we need to be the leader in how we fight congestion, at this moment, we are the number 2 city in the country when it comes to congestion beside l.a., we have some serious issues we need to tackle and the neighborhoods we live in are the densest neighborhoods in the east coast, in the district, i have the densest neighborhoods in the city where one out of three residents do not own a car and as someone who doesn't own a car, two of my favorite modes of transit are car sharing and my bicycle, car sharing because it's convenient not to own a car and my bicycle because it's easy to park, scoot allows you to pick up a bike when you need it but leave it and park it in ways that are easy and i want to thank michael and his team at scoot for innovating this, i'm excited about this for a second reason, we are the city of innovations and where great ideas start and c
alexander in the hall, thanks for starting us off tonight. >>> now over to our political director and chief white house correspondent chuck todd also at the venue tonight. chuck, what's the task for both sides, for both men? >> reporter: well, i can tell you that both campaigns view it this way. the candidate that spends more time litigating the other guy's plans will feel as if they're winning. the campaign that feels like they're spending more time defending their own plans will feel like they're losing. i can tell you this. one lesson that president obama and his campaign believe they've taken from president bush in 2004 is don't take this first debate lightly. that's why they prepared so much. and don't assume he's just going to sit back and, quote, sit on his lead. he's going to be a little more aggressive tonight than maybe people realize. as for mitt romney, don't be surprised if he tries to get libya in the conversation. yes, it's an economy debate, but if he doesn't, aides tell me he's got a big libya foreign policy speech that he'd like to do in the next couple of dies, brian. >>
in 2008. governor romney trailing in the polls currently hoping to use his debate performance to narrow the gap. it was the first time the two candidates were on stage face-to-face, a chance for governor romney to one-on-one answer allegations that the obama campaign has been firing his way. one of them over this idea that governor romney is trying to implement a $5 trillion tax cut for the rich. he repeatedly answered that question for president until it finally came down to this. >> look i've got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that is not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. but that is not the case, all right. i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. >> that is probably as close as last night's debate came to a memorable line. rather than being a selection of zingers it was uncharacteristic lee marked by substance, jon. jon: isn't that amazing, substance in a debate. what about the president's performance, and specifically senior voters and his appeal to them? >> reporter: you know, i think in the aftermat
with only 22 percent standing with the president. the same poll tells us that 63 percent now believe governor romney cares about their needs and problems. that is a 30% improvement since before the debate. the cnn polls showed an even more dramatic results. governor romney beating president obama by more than 30 points scoring a record 67 percent of as the winner. the first time a candidate has ever topped 60% in apple. the poll also showing 56 percent had changed their view of romney for the better since last night's debate. we will be taking all of that up here tonight with veteran campaign strategist and a former reagan political director ed rollins, a columnist and fox is political analyst ron williams and later author, former federal prosecutor andrew mccarthy. our next guest was in that debate spin room in denver last night. anchoring fox news coverage, joining us now, threadbare, the host a special report on the fox news channel. welcome. congratulations on another extraordinary evening for the fox news channel. >> thanks, lou. lou: let's start with your impressions, if we may

. as psychologists, we study abnormal behavior. anita shows distribution, most of us in here. you get anybody out here who is externalizing or anyone out here who is internalizing, as a psychologist, we try to bring them back in here so they're more healthy. that's what we study. when you're having problems in your life or any other area, if we can do something, talking to you versus talk therapy or medicine that might help you, what we're trying to do is get everybody back here so we're just kind of more balanced. with respect to the traumatic brain injuries and other types of things, that's much simpler for people to kind of understand that you had a concussive event or you had a t.b.i., traumatic brain injury, that's caused problems. we should be developing ways of helping to manage and treat those problems just like we do individuals who have the other types of problems. >> let me just add one thing there, which is it's a good question, but it highlights one of the challenges of introducing neuroscience today in the courtroom. at kent showed you some of his slides and mentioned during his tal

nor life should be wasted. >> we've still got a lot of good years in us and we can help a lot of people and that's the main thing we're doing. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening. with just 33 days to go, the presidential election is suddenly looking a whole lot different than it did 24 hours ago. republican challenger mitt romney did what he had to do in the first debate to turn his campaign around. have a look at our poll of uncommitted voters. voters who told us before the debate they had not made up their minds or could still change them. after watching the debate, 46% said governor romney won. less than half that thereby, 22%, said president obama won. 32% called it a tie. and look at this-- before the debate, only 30% of uncommitted voters said governor romney cares about their needs and problems. after the debate, that number more than doubled to 63%. on that same question, mr. obama's number went up as well, from 53% to 69. that was small consolation, though for a president whose debate performance has s

, start us off. >> reporter: diane, good evening from the debate hall here at the university of denver. you can see the stage behind me. everything planned right down to the minute tonight. president obama will enter from the right. the governor from massachusetts, governor romney entering from the left. but to give you an idea of the intimate setting here, about 1,000 people inside this debate hall when it starts. look behind the cameras tonight. we're inside a hockey arena that normally seats 8,000, but they've created this intimate setting as tens of millions watch from their living rooms tonight. when president obama and mitt romney walk onto that stage tonight, it will be the first time they've met face-to-face in four years. last time, during the presidential race in 2008, during those back-to-back democratic and republican presidential debates during the primaries, when candidates from both sides were called onto the stage, it was then senator obama and governor romney, huddled talking. they have spoken by telephone. the president congratulated romney when he clinched the republ
. "nightly news" begins now. >>> good evening. they now estimate over 67 million of us watched the debate in denver last night and what people saw was a highly energized, motivated and combative mitt romney sharing the stage with a subdued and lackluster president obama. what they saw was mitt romney on his way over the course of 90 minutes to scoring a clear and consensus victory in what will be the first of three meetings between these two men. for romney, today felt like a new chapter. here's a look at the crowd waiting for him in virginia, while the president today said some things he was expected to say on that stage last night. we begin our coverage here tonight with nbc's andrea mitchell. good evening. >> good evening. the president showed up today armed with attack lines against mitt romney a day late. trying to regain his footing after a rocky debate performance, the president today seemed everything he was not last night. >> the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable to the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year. >> mit
being used in the hukas -- and i do believe that having the tobacco products there, open in a container, it would seem that it would be very likely that the customers would put the huka tobacco product on the hot stones if there are huka pipes present. that this is sort of similar to the phenomenon of electronic cigarettes, which now were recently banned by the airport commission and they're banned on airplanes. and this is even though there's no tobacco that is used in electronic cigarettes, the problem is that it gives the public the impression that smoking is permitted in areas where it's not permitted, and it also gives the impression to the public that there's no consequence to smoking in areas where smoking is not permitted. tobacco is still the number one cause of preventable deaths in the united states, and the two major factors that have reduced smoking in san francisco from about 20% to about 11.9% from 190 to now are snoak-free laws and tobacco taxes and that would be -- the -- if we were to allow smoking in this facility. >> so the department of public health is asking the b
, taxes and the future of health care. nbc's tracie potts is in denver for us. she has a preview. good morning to you, tracie. >> reporter: lynn, good morning. the pressure was on for romney to perform, to back up his ideas with details, taking on the man that even republicans called one of the most skilled debaters in modern politics. the point of this debate was to make differences clear on lowering the debt. >> you said you'd cut the deficit in half. it's four years later, we still have trillion-dollar deficit. >> the way we do is for additional cut, we ask for a dollar of additional revenue, paid for, as i indicated earlier, by asking those of us who have done very well in this country to contribute a little bit more to reduce the deficit. >> reporter: the president insisted romney would spend $5 trillion on tax breaks favoring the wealthy. >> math, common sense and our history shows us that's not a recipe for job growth. >> everything he just said about my tax plan is inaccurate. >> reporter: they clashed on wall street, whether banks should be too big to fail, and medicare. >> cu

presidential debate. melissa mollet joins us with some of the highlights. >> reporter: good morning. in an hour, president obama will speak at a park in denver, then fly fo wisconsin this afternoon. meantime, romney is headed to virginia for a ral lee tonight. they might be moving on, but many are rehashing last night's debate. the debate was make or break for mitt romney who appeared confident, commanding and in control. at times, it seemed a subdued president obama was less prepared allowing romney to steer the direction of the debate. many, including "meet the press" host, david gregory calling romney the clear winner. >> his proposal calls for a tax cut on top of $2 trillion of spending. >> everything he said about my tax plan is inaccurate. if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i would say absolutely not. >> reporter: there's no time for rest. the senior advisers on the "today" show, early this morning. >> governor romney put more preparation into it than they did into the invasion of normandy. i expected a strong performance and got it. >> many were watching
partners helped us out of a very deep hole and continue to help keep us afloat and offer services to our students. i think another thing nancy wamack could maybe refresh us on is maybe that if the november ballot measures do not pass, we the governor has talked about additional school days cut. nancy, would you like to elaborate on that number, please? >> sure, commissioner. in the final version of the budget they changed the particular item to allow for an additional 15 days per year that could be cut rather than across 15 days the cross two years in january and may is version. state is now allowing up to 20 days per year to be cut from the school and from the school year, which is obviously atrocious. >> right. that would mean one month of school not being in session. this is really the state recommendation on how we should balance our budget is cut one month of instructions. that is just crazy and inexcusable. but i want to speak a little bit about what extra funds might do for our students, it's projected in 2014, 20% of students will not be graduating. they are on track now 20% not

which never works as most of us know because we don't recognize it. should we recognize it, that's an interesting question. should we have a more robust concept of diminished responsibility in light of the understanding that some people have less control over their preferences and desires or should we have better sentencing schemes or get rid of incarceration and come up with different models of trying to deal with punishment once we understand people have wrong selections. i think those are all interesting questions, but is there free will? well, the fact that almost everybody in the audience raised either their right or left hand contemplated it and were quickly able to act and respond. that to me says, yes, there is. now what do we want to do about it? now that we understand that those of us in the audience or up here that like chocolate cake may not have control over it, how do we want to account for that if at all in the criminal justice system? to date, we haven't. in the future, we may wish to. >> i agree with that. i think that, first of all, the fact that everybody in th
